Reviewed 3 September 2010

It was our first time visiting Funchal and in fact staying in a 5* hotel and we all had a thoroughly lovely time. We loved the hotel, the room was so big we could have lived there permanently! The nearby restaurants and bars were great. The view from the balcony was truely breathtaking, what a great way to start a day. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. We were all partial to the buffet breakfast, shame we couldn't have gone back later in the day to top up! Would love to visit again (lets home we get offered the timeshare again)

We are regular visitors to Madeira and stayed at the Savoy with my mums timeshare- it was fantastic- the room was spacious and decorated to a high standard.

Staff were helpful and meal and drinks were reasonably priced.


Love it here and will def be back. 5*

I have just returned from Madeira with a family member who has not been to Madeira before and once again I have to say the Hotel was as good as ever. The restaurant was excellent as was the service of everyone we came in contact with. The pools were wonderful and the rooms were spotless. Once again top marks. We went on the catamaran arranged by the Hotel and thoroughly recommend this trip.

Our Studio apartment at the ground floor was perfect for the children and us adults. We could go to the swimming pools directly from the flat. There is many different kinds of pools - for children with suitable temperature, with see water, with sweet water, with temperature of the Atlantic, with 28 degrees - and so on. Children loved it. Room service was excellent,staff very helpful and kind. We could have lunch outside facing to the pools or inside. You could choose from many different buffets for every taste or a la carte. For children it´s always the best. We made our breakfast in our little kitchen, which was the best choice with small kids, who woke up mostly at 6 a.m.

The one bedroom apartment was excellent and roomy also well appointed. The main disappointment was the slack service with not enough staff employed for a five star hotel. The food was ordinary and not up to standard for a hotel of this rating.

We are currently staying at The Royal Savoy Resort in a one bedroom, two bathroom suite which we obtained by exchanging one of our Marriott timeshare weeks through Interval. We have done this before and have been disappointed because what we have exchanged for is not up to Marriott standards but this certainly is. The position is great for strolling into Funchal and the view from the oversized balcony is superb. The suite is really tastefully furnished and well appointed. Having a kitchen we wouldn't normally eat in the hotel much but bought the 3 day half board package they have on offer and are impressed by the food. As can be seen from the photos the pool complex is fantastic.
We were a bit nervous about visiting Madeira after the storms but needn't be as the tourists aren't really effected by them and it is good to support the people who are working so hard to get things back to normal.

Less opulent and grand than the website suggests, although the rooms were exceptionally comfortable and well appointed, Pools are wonderful. Staff less than friendly and perhaps it was only due to the current economy but we seemed to be surrounded by pensioners!!!
